Giselle
English National Ballet
Direction and choreography by Akram Khan

 
Part of Spring 2022
The iconic ballet, reimagined.
One of today’s most celebrated dance artists, Akram Khan, brings breathtaking vision to the greatest Romantic ballet and its story of love, betrayal, and redemption. Featuring a cast of almost 50 dancers, this acclaimed production by English National Ballet comes to BAM for its New York premiere.
“Stunning—all of it.”
—Chicago Tribune
As the curtain rises, shadowy figures struggle against a forbidding wall. From that moment on, Akram Khan’s Giselle stuns with powerful images and mesmerizing choreography. With a new score by Vincenzo Lamagna adapted from Adolphe Adam’s original composition, the production features spectacular sets and costumes by Academy Award-winning designer Tim Yip (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) and atmospheric lighting design by Mark Henderson. Enter the rich world of Khan’s timely reimagining: a condemned factory haunted by vengeful ghosts and collective female rage.
